Artwork on website DeviantART with Ad in name gets blocked

I was noticing that artwork on DeviantART with the word Advertisement in its name gets blocked as a normal ad. It's confusing when people tell you that they can't see the artwork, not realizing they have AdBlock enabled.

    Hi Xavier,

    Thanks for letting us know! I'm afraid there isn't much we can do to fix this, however. We don't maintain the filter lists, we just use them to block the ads the list maintainers know about. You (or the artists affected by this) can try reporting the issue to the EasyList maintainers. You can find the contact info in our Knowledge Base.

    Let us know how it goes!
